Beating Them

Beating Them
In spite of the low-lying areas getting water, we should all be glad that the snow is melting more slowly than if we had instant 50 degree days.  There are still huge piles of snow around town, but that's just OK because it's better to have a slow melt than a fast.While driving down North Kentucky Avenue, I was shocked to see the size of those … continue reading

Thank goodness, in a baby-step fashion, our temps are beginning to rise.  When looking at this weekends weather forecast, I did happen to notice that we're supposed to get some sort of precipitation which could be rain, sleet or snow.  Irregardless, when speaking to one of my sellers today, he thought it would be fine to have a public open house … continue reading

Most of my morning was consumed by checking on several vacant properties as well as getting my new listing signed up and posted everywhere.  Since all the more business is being digitalized and sent out into our cyber universe, it does take a little more time to transfer data from one website to another, but that's just the way marketing real esta … continue reading

Frost Build Up

Frost Build Up
It may sound like a broken record when speaking about these cold days, but don't you think we've endured enough of them?  Someone mentioned something about another possible four to six inches on the weekend, and I'm sure praying whomever said it was completely mis-informed.Being out and about the Downtown today, I'd say our streets are piled a … continue reading

The Other Side

The Other Side
I'm sure everyone is beginning to wonder when it's going to start warming up.  It's rather unusual to find it this cold on a daily basis considering we're already three days away from March.  I'm gonna hope we don't get hit with another storm this weekend that's already predicted.  Oh well, it's all the game of chance whenever looking forward at … continue reading

As was expected, this morning was a beast with the amount of snow that had to be moved.  It wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't so biting cold which prompted me to put more layers of clothes on just so I could stay out there longer.  Thank goodness I have a long wool coat that I wear whenever I have to be outdoors for any length of time.  I' … continue reading

There's no question the main topic of conversation today has been this nasty blizzard that began around 10:00 pm last evening.  Every time I was awakened in the night from the sound of the wind blowing, I shuttered with the thought of what today was going to be like, and when daylight did arrive, it was as expected—terrible.One of my first d … continue reading

I headed to the office a little earlier than normal to get more accounting done along with doing some tidying up of my work areas.  It's amazing how much paper manages to get accumulated in several weeks time.  I really wish so many of those retailers and credit card companies would stop sending out their mailings.  I don't even bother opening o … continue reading

Shovels Away

Shovels Away
Let's hope this light sleet we're getting will be short-lived, and if it's not, there are going to be some dangerous driving conditions come tomorrow morning.  I really didn't think we would be getting any since it was snowing on and off most of the day, but of course there's no predicting our weather patterns these recent years.Most of my mor … continue reading

Fogged Over

Fogged Over
Having not attended a church service yesterday, I thought it best to catch an early one this morning.  With the condition of the side streets, I had to drive more carefully due to the slippery slush and then found I was almost late getting there.As I'd expected, there weren't that many people in attendance which was likely due to the weather. … continue reading
